We would like to operate a factory in the industrial estate. How do you usually process the application for a factory license, say in Chonburi area? How long will it take to complete the application?
As our company policy, we will require the first payment of our fees then, we will send to you the list of preliminary documents that we need in order to prepare the application.
It should take us 3-5 business days to finish the application after getting all information and documents from your side.
After submitting the application to the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT), the official will contact you to have a meeting to visit the factory site within 1-2 weeks if all documents are complete, which we will work with you for the most convenient time for the appointment of the meeting and the visit by the official. We will also consult with you and provide all support on the phone. If necessary, we will send our team to Chonburi to liaise with the IEAT officials.
It may take the IEAT official up to a few weeks (in most cases, shorter than that) for finish the evaluation of the project. Then the IEAT will notify us of its approval and we will request for the fees to pay to the IEAT before the licenses are issued.
Once we obtain the license, we will need 2 business days to translate it for you.
